3/17/08 – Important Note
Firstly, a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and yours. I’m sure most of you celebrated this weekend; donning your plastic green hats and all the other tacky peripheral accessories that try (and fail) to compensate for the fact that you don’t have a drop of Irish blood in you. Or some of you who do have Irish blood in you showed your pride with a bit more restraint – perhaps just a necklace of shamrocks and a green shirt. Or perhaps you’re like myself, almost completely to 100% Irish; so much so that Lucky the Leprechaun utters slurs about your Northern European ancestry…and as such, you just think of it as just another Monday. Or you’re this person, who celebrated by doing a “Grand Opening” of a different nature at the Stewart’s on Oakwood Ave.
Whatever the case, hope you all were safe this weekend and continue to be should you celebrate the holiday later today.
Without getting into too much detail – scratch that, any details – there’s a semi-serious family health emergency that’s sprung up in the past week. As such, I’m not going to have as much of an online “presence”, as much as that term bothers me for no good reason. In other words, if I’m not posting to the blog or the website or one of the social networking sites, that’s why.
As much as I appreciate them, it’s certainly not required that you reply to this or personally message me as it pertains to this matter. Just keep the family member in your thoughts, prayers, or whatever it is you do to wish somebody well in what is a trying time. Personally, I’m optimistic as all signs are pointing to it being caught very early. But there is recovery time for the procedure being done, and as such priorities dictate I spend my time taking care of my own.
To tide you over in the meantime…
– There’s a new 4 Color Commentary podcast as mentioned in the previous post.
– Though I won’t be able to record this week, I thankfully (and purely by accident) have two editions of the Living Under Marshall Law podcast already recorded and ready to go. One is the bonus wrestling talk with Brian P. Dermody, the other is an hour and a half with Mike Ryan aka Llakor talking comics, wrestling, and much more. So keep an eye out for those in the coming week.
Have a great and safe week, everyone!
